I read parts of this book and I found the perspective of the writer to be disrespectful to the Black person. He paints them as not intelligent, and all kinds of cliches that were prominent during the years when he was writing. I avoid this book.

However of course it is essential that there is history about every aspect of the past. is about free speech and they offer books on both sides of just about every issue. For that I'm very grateful to the cause of Internet Archive, I've learned so much from the old publications about my families' homes. (And have also learned from the books I don't like.) I'm a genealogist and it has helped my process so much.

Just this week I joined and give a small contribution to them. It didn't hurt to do it. It was very easy to accomplish as they have contributions set up going through It feels right to give to the organization that gives so much.
